Just got back to our hotel after the night cruise. Super experience! Exactly as described on the website. The boat is very comfortable. My husband listened to the video guide in Russian; myself in English. An experience not to be missed!
Hi Lisa, that is lovely to hear that you liked the boat tour and could listen to the river cruise guide in two different languages, yet enjoying it as a couple. Thank you for your kind words. Enjoy your Budapest stay and the summer nights!
We are two students interested in the cruise. What document would we need to have with us to buy the students tickets?
Hello Gosia & Jacek,
thank you for contacting us.
Student tickets can be bought if you have valid student cards, irrespectively of the country of issue. Please have the student card with you when boarding the ship.
Enjoy your evening river cruise and your time in Budapest.
hello, my family and I would like to talk a 9pm night river cruise on June and were wondering where we will be boarding the ship, are the port that we’ll be boarding and getting off the ship the same, and what time should we arrive the port?
The meeting point of the 9 pm Cruise is 5 min walk from the city center, at the river Danube, Dock 7 on Vigado Square, Budapest, District V: http://goo.gl/eO8ipp
Yes, the cruise ends on the same place where it starts from on Vigado Square.
Hours of Cruise & Embarking (start / finish): 9 pm – 10 pm. Boarding 10 minutes before the cruise begins.
Hello, my girlfriend and I are looking at booking a 9pm night cruise on Saturday the 23rd of this month.
We are staying on the Buda side by arpad hid, could you please give us the best route to get to the correct dock and the time we would need to be there by. Thanks.
the meeting point of the 9 pm Cruise is 5 min walk from the city center, at the river Danube, Dock 7 on Vigado Square, Budapest, District V: http://goo.gl/eO8ipp
Please arrive 5-10 min before the actual cruise starts to ensure seamless embarking.
This means that you could expect a 35 – 45 min ride from Arpad Bridge (Buda side of Budapest) to get to Vigado Square (city center, Pest side of Budapest), approx. route – depending on which hotel you are staying at – is the following
On top of the public transport estimation please add 5-10 more minutes to check in. For a better seat by the window you may want to check in earlier, approx. 15 – 25 min.
Hope you will enjoy the cruise. To avoid overbooking we recommend booking your cruise tickets in advance.
